FROM JUST FIVE PETALS TO A SHADE CALLED ‘BLACK’: SEE UNUSUAL ROSES AT GARDENS BY THE BAY’S ROSE ROMANCE

These blooms are among 16,000 roses of close to 70 varieties in myriad forms and colours, that are showcased in the Turkish-themed floral display in Flower Dome

Rose Romance Gardens by the Bay

From just five petals to more than 90; from typical pinks and reds, to two-toned, to a shade some horticulturists call “black” – over 16,000 roses of nearly 70 varieties feature in Gardens by the Bay’s Rose Romance floral display. The fifth edition of Rose Romance opened on 2 June in Flower Dome and runs until 30 June 2024.

This year’s Rose Romance, presented in collaboration with the Embassy of the Republic of Türkiye in Singapore, also explores the rich cultural heritage of Türkiye, influenced by the ancient civilizations of Greece and Rome.

Nearly 70 rose varieties in a spectrum of forms and colours

Türkiye produces approximately 65 per cent of the world’s demand for rose oil, as the cultivation of Damask roses is an industry in Isparta, a southwestern province known as “Rose City”. In addition to Damask roses, Rose Romance has also brought in the “black” roses of Türkiye. These blooms are so-named because of the dark, rich hue of their velvety petals.

In addition, there are other unique roses on show, which diverge from the conventional appearance of a rose. The Rosa ‘Sunshine Babylon Eyes’ is a striking variety with just five petals, yet featuring a vibrant centre of pink and yellow, that creates an illusion of a flower within a flower. On the other end of the petal spectrum, there is Rosa ‘Leonardo da Vinci’, named after the artist and which boasts of over 90 petals in a striking shade of deep pink.

The roses are complemented by flowers such as delphiniums, lavender, carnations, and petunias.

Bringing Türkiye’s historical and geographical wonders to Flower Dome

In consultation with the Turkish Embassy, the perhaps lesser-known side of Türkiye is brought to life with detailed recreations of the country’s historical and geographical wonders. These include the Roman columns of Hierapolis, a prosperous spa town during the Hellenistic period, alongside the Antonine Fountain from Sagalassos, once a thriving city of the Roman Empire. Visitors are transported back to when ancient Greece and subsequently Rome, once shaped Türkiye.

There is also the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Pamukkale – which translates to “Cotton Castle” in English – a sight beyond imagination where nature causes the formation of cottony-white travertine terraces contrasted against azure spring waters.




Visitors can also experience quintessential Turkish architecture through a recreated Bodrum house with its distinctive, white-washed exteriors and blue accents, a style which is emblematic of Türkiye’s Aegean coast. A traditional rose distillery setup offers a glimpse into Isparta’s rose oil production, while a perfume storefront, decorated with authentic Turkish items, brings to the display a vibrant marketplace atmosphere.

For a limited period, Rosense skincare products made from Isparta roses, will be available for the first time in Singapore at Gardens by the Bay’s retail shop.
